We are delighted to be able to offer a project for Imperial College students over the next 4 weeks, to design, train and build a deep learning generative music system. This is for an independently-produced film documentary that is currently being made for release in May 2019.

The production team has already assembled a dataset of songs that will be used to train a generative neural network system, whose output will be featured in the show.

We are looking for a small group of up to 4 students to work together on this project. The work will be supervised by Dr Kevin Webster (honorary research fellow in the mathematics department). If you are interested to participate, please fill out the contact form below.


  • You should be familiar with the python programming language (preferably python 3)

  • You should have some demonstrable experience and/or interest with machine learning, preferably including deep learning

  • You should have a basic knowledge of music theory (esp. music notation, chord symbols)

  • It would be beneficial if you have some experience working with Tensorflow (this is not strictly required, as there will be tasks that do not use Tensorflow)
